The Walled Garden
Remarkable Traditional Walled Garden
You will find Dunmore Gardens on the Donegal Garden Trail. Not only has it over 2.5 acres of flowers, but it also has intricate winding paths and ponds. In fact Dunmore is an idyllic secluded spot in which you can relax.
In particular the walled garden boasts:
– a rich collection of plants
– intricate paths that radiate from the huge central redwood in the middle of the garden
– willows gracefully arching over the pond
– beautiful white lilies
– early 20th century terraced rose beds
– hidden archways
– secret corners.
The wonderful traditional walled garden dates back to 1742. And it is all set in 100 acres of farm and woodland surrounding Dunmore House, a lovely Georgian Country house.
The McFarland family have lived at Dunmore for four generations. We welcome weddings, celebrations and garden parties. Visitors come looking for an ideal venue for an occasion or simply to relax in the sanctuary of the walled garden. In addition we have recently restored the heritage barn. And there is a marquee as well available for events, conferences and parties.
